The wording of paragraph 16 of the draft Declaration of Bridgetown is worth noting. The Ministers express their commitment to working towards the creation and maintenance of an enabling environment for business in the Americas in the following terms: "16. We are committed to policies that promote and facilitate the development of productive, competitive and sustainable enterprises, including micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs) and other production units, as we recognize their contribution to employment generation, economic growth and social inclusion. We agree to work towards the creation and maintenance of an enabling environment for the establishment and growth of sustainable enterprises, and we commit to strengthen programmes aimed at reducing informality and providing technical assistance in the financial, social and environmental aspects of business" Please visit the website of the OAS where you may also find these documents along with the main outcomes, and a photo gallery.
